Hello Friends, How are you? Today I am delighted to be partaking in Hero Arts Winter Catalog Blog Hop. It’s the launch of the Winter 2016 release in the Hero Arts store!! The best part is the products are ready to ship but, before you go anywhere I have two cards and a video for you PLUS giveaway details. Woo Hoo!
This release is pretty bangin and I think you will see lots of holiday cards today so I am giving you a different spin with my cards. My first card can be used any time of the year … I think.
My video is at the bottom of my post… it’s all about the key elements in both of my cards. I love mistletoe … so I stamped the background with Bundled Sage, Cracked Pistachio & Mowed Lawn then I colored part of the background and added some vellum to soften the background.
The mistletoe in the “Holly Days” was colored with distress ink. Fun… quick and easy if you don’t mind fussy cutting. I figure the time you save by not “coloring” you can bank that for fussy cutting.
For this card I combined Holly Days and Vintage Post. These two stamps set are so lovely to combine. I love cardinals but, felt like the red was to much on my card plus I wanted to show you that there are other options with birds.
The bird was colored with distress ink and white accents were added with a gel pen.
My moon was masked off with this masking paper and more distess ink was applied. Check out the video below to see all the details.
